Sending and Receiving Payments
Receiving payments through Popmoney is fast and simple. To get started, log in to iBank, click on the “iBillPay” tab and then click on the “Popmoney” tab. Once you are on the Popmoney screen, click on the “Preferences’” tab to make sure your email address or phone number is listed. You can then indicate whether you’d like receive your verification code via text or email. Once you receive the verification code from the text or email, enter it on the Popmoney screen where indicated. After the email/phone number has been entered and validated, you will be able to retrieve the payment. Payment can then be received in as little as one business day; however, in some cases it may take longer.
If you send an email or mobile payment to a recipient that is not yet registered for Popmoney, he/she must sign up for the service before they can retrieve the payment. If you would like to send or receive payment from friends and family who do not use a bank or credit union in the Popmoney network, direct them to the upgraded popmoney.com website* so that they can receive money just as you do here at Oak Bank. They can even use the “Quick Deposit” feature to deposit the payment without going through the full enrollment process. If they choose to enroll so they can send money as well, they will no longer be required to enter their social security number. You can even send money directly to a financial institution account, so your recipient doesn’t have to do anything.
There are limits to the amount you can send per transaction, per day and per month, as well as to total outstanding payments. You may experience a delay in payment if you exceed your next-day payment limits. If that is the case, we will deliver payments within three business days. Limits can and will vary by user and financial institution. To check your limits, click on the “Help” icon on the “Send Money” screen.
